Business Coaching

Helping You To Transform Your Business

Are you running your business or is your business running you?!

I work with business owners to help them to resolve issues and grow their business without burning themselves out!

Today, more than ever, business leaders are under increasing pressure to continually adapt and grow their business in an ever-changing climate.

  • Many leaders feel isolated, and struggle to achieve the success they once dreamed of.
  • They often experience high levels of anxiety and stress.
  • For some, this can significantly affect both the performance of the business and also their home life.

Prior to my Coaching business, I was co-founder and director of a mobile technology company that was established in 2004. With my business partners we successfully developed the business from zero to an annual 8-figure turnover and employed over 30 people. We developed and navigated the business through the turbulent times of the 2008 “credit-crunch”; helped many customers along the way and on to a successful sale of the business.

This experience has provided me with a solid foundation to help other business owners through my Business Coaching programme. I can appreciate (more than most) the pleasure and pain of running a business! I’ve experienced the excitement of creating the business; the fulfilment and joy of seeing it grow and also the stress when things go wrong with the business and you find your-self waking up in the early hours of the morning - worrying!

What is Business Coaching with Kev?

Business Coaching with me is a “coaching-partnership” where I work closely with you. We review any issues within the business and brain-storm solutions. We also strategise together to create opportunities for business growth and success.

What does it take to create success?

I like to use the quote from Tony Robbins: “Success is 80% mindset and 20% strategy”

The mindset of the business leader is the most defining factor when it comes to creating success within the business. If the business leader has the right mindset - he or she will ultimately implement the right strategy.

Business coaching with me does not only look at strategy - in fact much of it focuses on the mindset of the business leader as this is the key to unlock the opportunity of success.

I have many years experience running an IT business, with in-depth knowledge of sales, marketing and the technical aspects of running a business. I may not however have direct knowledge of the market your business is in. This is not essential for me as your coach as I’ll be focusing on helping you to unlock your own potential to grow the business and create success.

I like to use the quote from Sir John Whitmore in his book “Coaching for Performance” where he describes what coaching is:

“Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximise their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them.”

My business coaching provides you with a balance of support and challenge that will help you to understand and overcome the business challenges you face, so that you can face the future with confidence.

TESTIMONIALS FROM SOME OF MY MOST RECENT CLIENTS

The reason I decided to look for a coach was to become unstuck in my career, within one session I gained the confidence to apply for a new job and got it! I needed clarity on what I wanted in my working life which inevitably with Kev’s coaching style bumped into other areas of my life that needed fine tuning. I seemed to have a gap between the real me and the outdated story I was telling myself. With Kev’s help I was able to realise I didn’t need to be more, less, better or worse, that I was resourceful already, can use my intuition to good effect and that it was OK being me. Kev’s relaxed style made it easy for me to move forward and I left each session feeling positive. I would thoroughly recommend giving Coaching a go with Kev.

I began my sessions with Kev to address issues I knew I had around anxiety in my professional and personal life. I could see how the anxiety was limiting me and wanted to change, to not be restricted by my emotions. My self-esteem was very low so I was finding it difficult to talk publicly, to be confident in my work and to have the drive to take action in my life. In our sessions we’ve worked a lot on my anxiety. He’s helped me break things down and has given me the tools I needed to help me manage my own mind and overcome the obstacles that I faced. The difference I’ve noticed in myself since starting with Kev has been immeasurable. I’ve grown in confidence and I’ve noticed my anxiety is not restricting me as much in my daily life, I’m a much happier person. I would recommend Kev to anyone who’s feeling stuck in their life, who want to understand their own minds better and overcome emotional barriers. His approach allows you to find your own solutions by giving you the tools you need, this method has meant that I’ve been able to go away form our sessions and work on other problems in my own time, such a valuable skill.

I found Kevin an incredibly talented as a coach. From the first session I had with him, I could tell the deep knowledge and passion he has toward helping his clients. His uplifting skills and positive energy helped me to open up in many aspects of my life and business path. I enjoyed his new approach that he used in every coaching session. You will be thinking that he is done with you, then he'll surprise you about a challenge that will stretch your brain in many ways. Kevin is a coach by nature, and by many other natural traits that he demonstrates during his sessions. I would highly recommend Kevin as both a career and personal coach. In fact his broad experience in both life and business is what makes him a wonderful coach and a human being to work with.

I was a bit sceptical when I started out on this experience with Kev but now I am so pleased I did. He managed to bring out the business skills I had forgotten I had and gave me the confidence to tackle some issues I knew I had to address but had put off. Our conversations allow me to bounce off ideas that I couldn’t digest during the normal working day and gave me food for thought. After each session I felt refreshed and ready to take on whatever was thrown at me. He has a knack of asking questions that he knows you have the answers to if you dig deep enough and encourages you to find them and to believe in yourself.

I hired Kevin as my Business Coach while I was starting my new business and also going through a divorce. Kevin's compassionate nature and solution-focused approach helped me move forward with my business while experiencing a great deal of personal transition. Kevin allowed me to discover clarity and focus while providing me with excellent accountability through our coaching together.

Kevin was fully committed to me as his client, this projected an extraordinary positive energy in the sessions which created a trustful and empowering environment to enable me to find my path for my goals. During my journey of coaching with Kevin I was in one of those “life crash moments”, he helped me to understand who I am and what I want, which has been an extraordinary remedy to bring me peace and happiness. Thank you, Kevin!

During my sessions with Kevin, he was able to coach me to a much sharper focus on my issues. In a very short time I gained a deeper insight, new learning and a clear way forward. The sessions were delightfully surprising, effective and professionally delivered.

Over the last 6 months Kevin has worked with me as my Executive Coach, during this time he has coached me through a number of key areas. As a coach, he is very calm, knowledgeable and most importantly insightful, he has a great ability to ask the right question or use the right intervention just at the right moment. Working with Kevin has been a very reinforcing and positive experience, where he has afforded me the time and space to allow me to work through the areas I brought to each session in a creative and supportive manner. Kevin is a very natural Coach and I would highly recommend him.

Being coached by Kev has given me the opportunity to unashamedly think just about myself and the future and to get clarity about my own business development without feeling time-pressured. It’s lonely at the top: I don’t have anyone to talk to about decisions affecting my businesses. No-one should be an island. I was an island before Kev. Coaching is unlocking my blocks. Having the experience of someone else who is in business and speaking through solutions has been very beneficial to me. Coming up with a list of achievable goals to deliver and knowing you need to deliver them is what I wanted out of the coach - and is what I am getting.
